I have a 1988 ford bronco fullsize and the brakes overheat HORRIBLY. I bought it about a year ago as a project. It has about 88000 miles. Here is where I am stumped. Because of the excessive overheating I repalced the pads, rotors, calipers, lines, master cylinder, porportioning valve, and repacked the bearings all just in the front. The rear has never given me problems. Only the front overheats.

Are you sure the rears are working? It would explain the extra load on the fronts heating them up.

Thank you so much for the help. I heard that from some one else too. I will definetly check out the rears. The only thing is that the fronts seem to over heat even when I'm not using the brakes, such as interstate driving. Thanks again.

Well, if they are doing it when driving on a hyway, then maybe the proportioning valve is sticking and holding pressure. Just a thought.
